Wasn't there word of a small set of LIM prior to the billboard?

^^ I heard the same thing. I remember in some TR where they said that their was one, you could just barely feel it, if you even can.

i'm not sure what to put here..

Yes, there is a small set of LIMS right before you exit the billboard tunnel. If you look at construction pictures you will notice a straight piece of track before the drop- that is where it is supposed to give you a small boost, but from what I have heard you can't feel it.

There are LIMs and brakes at the billboard section. I suspect they're there in case station problems force them to stop a train before the splashdown scene, not for shooting the train out of the billboard.

ShiveringTim's avatar There are no brakes at the billboard. They're only at the helicopter scene and the station.

Yes... technically there are 3 sets of LIM's. Station launch, after the helicopter scene and inside the billboard. You can't really feel the ones inside the billboard. PCW's website refers to two launches and a "boost" at the billboard.

There are no breaks inside the billboard, but there are breaks at the bottom of the hill outside the billboard. You are trimmed and slowed down considerably before the last turn around into the station.

BRAKE. A stopping device.

Break, To injure or damage.

Not meaning any dissrespect as I am one of the worst spellers myself. But this is one of the easiest and most miss-used ones I see in this hobby.

Neither park has yet to utilize the "boost" LIMs that reside at the end of the final tunnel section just before the bilboard splashdown. That is why you cannot feel it.
